Program: Adaptive reuse of historic power plant into sustainably-focused architectural studio
The Kubala Washatko Architects’ Studio
In 1996 the Kubala Washatko Architects, Inc. (TKWA) moved its studio to an abandoned power plant along the banks of Cedar Creek. This unique architectural space is a working model of the firm’s commitment to sustainable design, historic preservation, and the creation of a life-enhancing work environment.
Recognizing the building’s historic character, the existing brick and steel structure was preserved using the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and placed on the State Register of Historic Places. All original industrial steel-sash windows were restored, leaving the historic integrity of the building intact.
